It has been quite a few days since I posted! By now you guessed I might be a little unpredictable which sometimes it’s good for other work it just isn’t, but you’ll see me post more consistently on a weekly basis 🙂 15 straight blog post for a complete book in the blog manifesto section and there’s a great new paid book for JV alliances and one that’ll become edited and uploaded on the Kindle Network! Getting there!
I am sure you’ll enjoy this new specific blog post a lot if you founded my previous blog post quite useful. In such blog post I discussed how to earn $50-$100 a day, by just using Fiverr.com. Today, it’ll be another day were I hold nothing back!
When I mean hold nothing back, you should know I really mean it. History and friendly feedback lets me conclude that folks – usually, friends, colleagues and people close to you might want you to succeed heavily and wish you really the best every time they see you. It’s a kind gesture when you usually see someone and it makes us bond more and as social butterflies, we all love it.
Reality, do you really think most people that wish you the best want you to succeed more than what they’ve succeeded in their own careers or entire lifespan whether you earned it or not? How many friends do you have that want you to have better career success than they’ve actually have or had for themselves? Tell me who’s the alien! You might have 1 or 2, but chances is it might not be who you think.
In my case, it’ll be awesome if you succeed and earn more than I do (which is simple as well) because at the end of the day it’s just about growing happier, having more freedom and achieving a more fulfilled life.
If you think about it carefully, more money will just buy you more expensive toys, a bigger roof, often get you more free time depending what you do for a living and ultimately make you more comfortable long term as always depending what you do now That is the bigger picture. So trust the words, you’ll get Intel from this blog that’ll truly help you if you put in the time and work involved whether you pay for it or do it freely on your own spare time.
You will get to see proof( as a case study with the current live website in next blog posts) of how the site consistently earned from $1.6k up to $3k a month by just selling an eBook while working at one of the best part-times in the world, Delta Airlines.
I’m going 10+ years back in start ups and I’ll tell you what I’ll do to earn smarter income on the side if I were just getting started with just a simple eBook. Yes, I sold books before the ideas of $0.99-$2.99 eBooks were born at Amazon 🙂 Good timing, so you could guess I am old school. Opportunity for volume is still great. I’m more of a less means more type of guy in a business perspective, more on this later of course. Earning $50 a day is just an understatement with this concept.
You will also see how you can implement the “The 4 Hour Work Week” for years with this type of work if you’re into sharing your knowledge for a few hundred dollars a month when you get started. It could grow to a lot more on a monthly basis.
It starts as work and eventually it grows to a business as you can optionally hire 1 dude 1,000s of miles away, fully equip and train him/her and just manage him or her for 2-4 hours a week on weekly requirements. I’ll show the still live website. I’m guessing the website still makes the new owner around $100-$200 a month just seating online collecting dust thanks to the 100’s of articles that were published through the years.
Now. If you liked my previous blog posts, you might enjoy this blog post even more. So up for today’s blog post…
Next chapter, what I promised in previous post…
- How to write a valuable book even if you haven’t written half a page in your life
- How to immediately earn $50 or more each and every day selling your eBook
- Where to sell your eBooks for multiple streams of income
4 Starting Baby Steps That Will Snowball Yourself To A
$50-$100 Starting Author Success…
Very simple steps as you may also agree. Define your goal, develop a plan, take action, stick to 1 specific project and ultimately you’ll arrive at some kind of success if you follow a mentor or someone that UNDERSTANDS more of what you want to achieve.
I’ve earned 1,000’s a month consistently month by month with this type of work. It obviously didn’t make me rich but it was good enough to pay the bills, get the bank to accept a nice new mortgage and added the comfort of extra vacations.
It sold well as it brought a solution to the target market, still does apparently. Situation always being, I end up selling every asset which is sometimes great and sometimes to my learning surprise, a mistake. That is up for discussion eventually.
Many things have changed since 2005, like how to promote the eBook business and where exactly you can promote to earn $50 to $100 a day with an eBook. However, the principles and the foundation for starting and finishing a great non-fiction book is the same. Many people have different process.
I’ll show you the simplest way to start and finish the book and proceed with everything else that entails earning from your hard earned time. I’ll also add the income proof, it always motivates us a lot more when we see the results. I just like taking my time 🙂
The Goal And The Plan
- Write a 7,000-10,000 word eBook with a minimum of 25 pages and 50 pages as max
- A book designed for Adhd readers so that anyone can finish 1 chapter, build up easy momentum devouring the book in 1-2 seats and hopefully ending you with raving fans
- A book on a particular topic I like, strength(s) in a subject I have and something I know have more experience than other people (yes YOU!)
- Focus on $50 a day from eBook profits, a very realistic goal (you’ll get to see proof and the Google search function might get you amazed too!)
- Sell the eBook business for $1,000’s at public auction or private auction through a broker (or keep it)
That’s it. A very simple goal. Nothing fancy. No need for a 50 page business plan (yes they’re overrated!)
Now, you might hate writing, but you could get to love it with these steps eventually. Facts is, a 7,000 word mock-up can be turned into a 25 page Kindle eBook and that’s from personal experience as well. It’s incredibly easy when you’re passionate about a particular subject, get a surge of endless motivation for added progress and when you truly understand enough about a particular market.
Endless amount of “how to” and “what to do’s” can just bamboozle your brain with substantial value for a specific target market with your non-fiction eBook. An eBook that will help many people solve a problem, a special want or both. You remember this movie, right?
The things we’d do with that magic pill. I know good sleep, good amount of exercise and good sex will make you feel like that every day, can’t imagine if that pill actually existed!! Lord have mercy on the righteous!
Why is it so simple to write an eBook?
Indeed! Take Action!
Here Is How To Write An eBook In 15 Days or Less!
– Make yourself a deadline for starting and finishing 7,000 or 10,000 words (mine is November 30th)
– Write 10 specific article title’s on something you know more than others, have lots of experience or have specialized expertise starting TODAY!
– Set a deadline and meet your deadlines. That’s it.
There are many article topics to start for a particular niche, to provide an example based on this blog I can create title’s and write about these endlessly and give proof to it; “How to drive traffic using Google and keeping it for years by free or paid means”, “How to get 100,000 visitors to your eBook site for free with Google”, “What are the best paid advertisements money can buy for your product or service online” , “How to rank your website to the top of Google with little to no investment of your time”.
Even better, do you like dating or do you currently consider your conversion better than average? Why not writing a dating book. I mean it’s super fun. You might guessed where I am heading. I even wrote a darn good report about it and sold everything with the customer list of 900+ subscribers for $3,700 for a few days of fun blog posts and a small report a few years ago. That is what college can do to ANY dude with the right attitude.
Attitude, confidence(results) and you’ll crack yourself up for writing those moments (seriously!)
Hilarious! The shit you believe when you’re kinda’ getting above average results at college, becoming Mr. Polyamory in a given sense and having the starting good times of the 20’s. A little outrageous to believe by every mean, sure I know. “The #1 Puerto Rican Dating Expert?”. We both know that’s one heck of catchy headline to say the least 🙂 I’m with you here. Can’t help but agree on being a little outrageous, but results were the ones guilty of making me create and publish such things. Seriously! As long as you can prove it your mind won’t scream bullshit anytime soon. That’s what matters. So point being, on topic. By creating subject title’s and eye catching topics like I’ve done even at this very same blog at the end of each written blog post here (or like the headline in that old time dating eBook), you set yourself for immediate snow ball effect and momentum as you’ll immediately know what to write about and ultimately come closer to your 7,000 or 10,000 words of value that your ideal customer (target market) will want to read.
With 2,500 words you can have a small report published in Kindle Publisher Network. With 7,000-10,000 words you can easily have a 25-30 page eBook when you integrate relevant images to your eBook. Images or videos not only are great for association of the message or for setting the example you want to set for your reader, but it adds an ADHD bandage for today’s crazy distraction phenomenon. Even if you don’t have Adhd, you could at least agree that it’s superbly easy for most people to get distracted. So have this in mind if you want to build a tribe or a good silent following.
Next thing you know, few days passed, you’ve written more than 10,000 words of transparent ways to solve a problem and you’ve helped someone in a specific manner by seating your ass for a few hours tops writing weekly solutions. So there is absolutely no need for a 100 page book teaching you how to write a valuable book for a desired target market.
Sure, you’ll need help in formatting, where to promote it and how to get traffic for acquiring fans. A quick Google is a search away if wanting to learn how to “format” an eBook. Paying someone $20 at Fiverr will do it. For acquiring traffic or marketing your book you’ll keep getting your feet wet with my continued blog posts and then some 😉
That All Seems Nice, But I Am Not A Writer!
What’s An Easier Solution To Get My Book Done ASAP?
- Visit Upwork.com and create an account
- Post a project for a 25-30 for $200.00 USD (the higher your bid the more quality bids you’ll have from awesome writers)
- Analyze all the $80-$200+ bids, use the feedback to evaluate and ask for samples of previous books written (or content written to the very least)
- Have a 7-14 day deadline (use your preferred writer feedback for this conclusion)
- You skipped a part. Congrats! You now monetize by knowing where to offer your eBook and do your best to acquire targeted traffic!
Where To Promote Your New eBook, Get Easily Paid
$50 a Day And Build Continued Momentum!
Word just popped out and I seriously want to finally see the movie! You get the picture, once you get results, this is easier than most people could think, cowabunga will be the least of your words once you see the first positive results.
You can still associate it to the excitement of waking up early in the morning and seeing that while you slept you got 2-3 sales. That when you actually took the time to write your own book in your own authentic way after you hired someone to write a book for you. Trust me, it’s better when it’s your own hard sweat and worked printed.
So as you might have guessed, here where the fun actually begins! Yes, yes…please smile like Eddie here! You can tell I really liked the movie, yes 🙂
By experience the best form of advertisement is the one you can track, is predictable and the one that gets you consistent positive results over and over again. There is no second guessing here. When you get traffic from Google count it as a free earned perk that can be taking away at any time.
A perk that you are entitled until Google says you can. Why? Because Google is a business and getting free traffic from Google.com search results for your particular keyword(s) is a business-to-business perk, not a business-to-industry serving, which is a priceless reward – when and if – you consistently adapt to the constant changes of Google algorithmic search engine optimization game.
I mean seriously, Google’s search algorithm changes so much that anyone starting a business with the hope of free predictable traffic after a few month of SEO investment might get discourage and think Google search is just bipolar, which they should be as their main business is to get you to pay for Adwords paid traffic and not free search traffic. If you think about it objectively, Google has created a complete industry for itself fortifying the internet industry year by year and creating massive amount of business opportunities worldwide. They are not in the hospitality business.
They can grab you by your “aha assets!” if they want, which is way to much control in my view, and they’ll do whatever they need to do ethically (that’s a faithful spirit view!) to sway multinational companies and other profitable entities to promote themselves through Google Adwords. A puzzle that should be part of your strategic marketing plan, like this how to make extra money from home blog . Free traffic should be part of your strategic methods for acquiring new customers, but not the exclusive one in my personal view.
On a positive note, this blog already is averaging 24 visitors a day with only a blog post at Facebook and a few new readers from Google.com search.
I thank in advance does that continue reading, the inside results don’t lie. No paid advertisements or free promotion has been run. Just valuable content that a specific group of people would enjoy. Google should be part of your strategic marketing plan! Don’t discard them. Reasons why in numbers shortly in new blog post updates.
Places To Promote Your eBook – This Is Where We Dance – Open Your Eyes Wide!
***Take Action, Do Fuck-ups Fast, Adjust, Fix, Create Momentum and Ultimately Become Great At This By Sticking To This***
Marketing – Top 3 Traceable Promotions!
- Niche Relevant Forums – find forums in your specific eBook niche. Not only it’s perfect to get exact ideas on what potential customers need answers, but forums are one of my favorite mediums of predictable advertising. Definitely not my favorite, but paid promotions through forums can pay the bills and more with just an eBook.
I have never promoted eBooks on targeted forums, but I am sure an extra $500-$1,000 could have been additionally received each month from targeted relevant niche forums if I were to promote all my history of eBooks at forums, but I preferred Google.com for it. So yes, find a very populated forum and pay to market your eBook in a forum sub-category. Usually a signature file link each time you post will get you started with immediate traffic.
Word of caution here with a good example. Fuck ups. Keep them to a minimum, small and manageable. You will make mistakes sooner or later. It is, as you may also agree, how you react to those mistakes that truly make the ending difference. The bigger your greed, the more time it could take you to add a bandage if you error. I’m still paying $1,000’s from a few clients and investor errors here back from 2 short years ago. Shit happens. Still getting fixed and it’s not the end of the world..
To keep it short and simple, build an eBook business(or a business) based on your desire to help first and ultimately to earn some money. Not the other way around. As Zig Ziglar has said before, “You will get all you want in life if you help enough other people get what they want”. Completely agree.
Once you become great at more than a few things and built an image, you can command and ask for $1,000 and even $5,000 and you’ll often get it. Its just the way it is . So be cautious on your promises and your guarantees when you establish a solid positive reputation. You might get what you want, but at a steep price if you don’t plan everything correctly. So you guessed it. Plan your marketing well (benefits, guarantees, others) and keep testing until you find both paid and free promotional ways to get targeted exposure to your eBook.
I am in numerous forums, over 11 forums since I started. Definitely you can pay the bills and more with just one forum and build a solid business.
Among my favorites to discuss my online marketing tests and promote my own products and services are 3 forums I mingle on an almost daily basis as of now; Wicked Fire , Web Hosting Talk , Digital Point to name a few favorites. Just know that these sites are worthy to actually connect with other fellow entrepreneurs and get answers to possible puzzling questions you may have down the road.
Find a relevant forum niche at Google.com to promote your eBook by simple adding quotes to your niche and adding the plus signal with the word forum at the end.
– E.g; “dog training” + forum or you can also try; “dog training forum” in Google.com search box. Too easy.
- Google.com – become they’re awesome at free search traffic. My favorite type of traffic, you pay with your time and consistently reap the rewards with very little time after a few months. Search engine optimization also known as “SEO” and you’ll reap the rewards for many, many years no matter your situation. My ass is saved because of Google.com. So know what Google wants and give what Google.com wants. It’s not very simple. Google is an algorithm compromised of a big team that audits and reviews top ranking websites.
Google is the best search engine online and to keep it simple, draws the most amount of crowds because they’ve given people what they want for many years consistently. That is, relevant, highly targeted search results for any keyword searched on Google.com search box. And yes, of course, Google is also #1 thanks to Google Adwords paid advertisements. Google Adwords being yet another way of promoting your eBook and tracking your results that’s preferred by many promoters as well.
SEO (search engine optimization) is a particular skill you should also get good at. My favorite and one of the biggest authority websites on the topic of “SEO” is Search Engine Land. You can start studying about SEO, Google and go from there from that particular site. The forums I mentioned above will also become helpful for getting fast answers to your own puzzles.
- Amazon.com – honestly, who needs introduction here? One big use here. A buyers market organized nicely into most in-demand categories by search. Join the “Amazon Direct Kindle Network“. Once you’re ready with your eBook and have an eBook cover and formatted book according to Kindle, highly consider adding many if not all of your main information product as Kindle eBook. There are regular Joe’s earning six figures publishing tiny little eBooks in different niches for free at Kindle. You sure read it right, offering their eBook for free 😉
I’ll start my Kindle passive income portfolio this upcoming January 4th, 2016. Diversifying your marketing funnels is just plain smart.
Many folks achieve full time income with only 1 paid advertising medium and one big business online. These were just 3 options. There are many, many more ways to bank! Brainstorm some and get creative. You’ll find more simple ways to get exposure for your eBook launch.
That’s it for today. We are just getting started. Trust me on that one.
